With trauma or ongoing stress, survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. We might make adjustments, like seeking or avoiding certain types of situations, or clenching certain muscles to dodge tricky feelings or sensations. We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.

So many people feel lonely and disconnected. This can have many causes - childhood trauma, bullying, there are numerous factors. This results in anxiety, depression, sometimes suicidal thoughts. I value people beginning to see their own self worth, to recover from anxiety, depression trauma, whatever has caused them problems. Wonderful to see people starting to cope better with life, to become fully alive and be able to have meaningful relationships. Whatever is causing you suffering doesn't need to continue, do the work and start to recover.

My passion lies in helping individuals living with trauma, anxiety or depression related disorders, sex based issues, interpersonal difficulties and emotional regulation issues. I use a holistic client centred approach to help clients improve their relationship with themselves through self-compassion, awareness and emotional regulation. I use a combination of trauma informed approaches such as (Somatic Embodiment, Attachment Theory and Emotion Focussed Therapy) to support clients with emotional regulation, safely processing trauma and shifting unhelpful beliefs and unconscious patterns of behaviour.

As a therapist, I understand the need for warmth and acceptance. This is the foundation of a therapeutic relationship where people can show up with aspects of themselves that are problematic and unhelpful without judgement. I can relate to very human uncomfortable and undesirable behaviors, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. Through consistent support, compassion and curiosity, positive change becomes possible.

Currently open for new referrals. I work from an understanding that many of life's concerns stem from our past experiences in relationships and the structural difficulties that are present in our society. This organizes the way I understand peoples experience and distress and how I seek to understand how we are in relationship, and what fixed patterns get in the way of living a more meaningful and enriching life. I work with warmth and curiosity to help develop a deeper understanding of your area of concern and better make sense of why particular patterns might be causing distress.

I work with women who are looking to transform themselves and their lives. They recognise that their symptoms are the psyche's way of communicating that something needs to change. They are curious and smart, yet struggle to meet their potential. They can seem fine on the outside, but on the inside they are at rock bottom. They are looking to be witnessed by someone who wants to know their hopes, dreams and nightmares. They believe that transformation is possible, and that they have a unique gift to offer the world. They might feel lost, but deep down they know they are capable of greatness.
